About this deal

A Cuban Girl’s Guide To Tea and Tomorrow has a lovely place for romance and… damn if it wasn’t perfectly paced. But, with so much love for it from my friends, and online in general, I thought it would be worth it to give it a shot! The descriptions of Lila’s dishes have me dying for Cuban food and honestly, it’s almost impossible to find outside of Miami. Orion is quite knowledgeable about tea and a very cute moment was him trying to figure out Lila’s perfect tea flavor. I'm definitely rewriting this review because this is actually such lazy writing by me that I'm ashamed but I needed to put a review out.

Obviously, Young Adult books are THE best, but I do have a soft spot for poetry and adult books also.Preparation: Give Polly her kitchen back and share a genuine smile, from one legitimate baker to another.

The plan was 1) take over her abuela's role as head baker at their panaderia, 2) move in with her best friend after graduation, and 3) live happily ever after with her boyfriend. And it was this, the first glimpse of my distant family member at the airport, that made my journey even more surreal than when I boarded my flight. At first, she hates everything— the cold weather, a not-so-good impression with Polly, the inn’s baker, and constant worrying about La Paloma.This is something that really frustrated me and I couldn't for the life of me fall in love with the rest of the book because of this.

I thought this was very well written and I especially appreciated the way that the author depicted grief and depression, and I also thought that the romance at the center of this felt well flushed out and that the characters had great chemistry. But it’s hard not to feel that two of Lila’s ‘traumas’ (a breakup and a friend not joining her for college) are pretty run-of-the-mill for teens. Not even Señora Cabral, who still hobbles into my family’s bakery every Monday and was tan vieja before my parents were even born, is this old.She is a proud Cuban-American and can be found hunting for vintage treasures and wishing she was in London or Paris.
